On road diesel vs. Off road diesel???

What is the main difference between on and off road diesel and does it have any negative effects such as mpg, injectors, or any type of sensors??? Thanks in advanced.

Same exact fuel. The off road stuff is dyed red because it isnt taxed

whats the difference between on/off road diesel and #2 heating oil? I was told we can run #2 in our trucks, but I don't wanna do any damage. Same guy told me that #2 is the same as LSD instead of the dyded off road diesel which is the same as ULSD? Which would mean no need for additive.

I don't believe heating oil is as refined as #2 I sure wouldn't run it!!
As for ORD you better be careful, is it really worth a .20 a gallon difference. If you do a search with my name you will find my post from last summer where I got pulled over by State Troopers just so they could dip my tank. That's all these two cops do is pull over all the diesel trucks they can. First offense is 10 grand!!!
I have seen them over at the cattle auction dipping tanks but never heard of them pulling anyone over. The red dye will also stain your FF, and Yes they will pull the FF to look at it if they feel they need to. If they think you have ORD in the tank they take a sample and send it into a lab, if the concentration comes back high enough you get to write a nice big fat check!!

Not worth it to me, but I know many who use it!!

I own a tank of off-road diesel for the tractor. In our area the savings is 40 cents per gallon plus to me the convenience of having a bulk tank at home is very valuable.

When I first bought my powerstroke I changed the fuel filter and wanted to flush out the filter housing through the drain. Out of habit I just used a cup of off road diesel and now I have to worry about whether that was enough to taint my fuel system. Probably not but the fine is very very high.

The red dye is very dark and almost like blood. The tractor loves the stuff.

for the record off road diesel is not the same as on road, and the reason it is dyed red has nothing to do with its tax exemption. off road diesel has a higher sulfer and oil base content than your conventional road diesel.. "red" diesel is straight unrefined diesel fuel dyed red, the stuff we use in our trucks is refined for emission purposes. the high sulfer and oil contents cause off road diesel to emmit more. if you think you can get away with it by all means run the red! the oil content is better for your engine in every aspect..

I dont know about other states but in Missouri there is more of a difference in Off road fuel(farm Fuel) and Road grade fuel. New Road fuel is Has a Rating of 15ppm (parts per million) and farm diesel has a rating of 500ppm. The ppm rating is somewhat a measurement of the lubricating properties of the fuel, the lower the number the dryer the fuel will be. The new diesels are designed for ULSD or Ultra low sulfur diesel which is the 15ppm road fuel. So if the truck is a 6.4 i wouldnt run the Red fuel if its the 500ppm. The fuel system is very sensitive on these trucks which is why you cant run WVO and such in them. In some places as stated above the fuel is the same just dyed. It all depends on the sulfur content of the fuel. Just my 2 cents
